Harwich bawley, early 20th century.

Description

Model. Bawleys were used from Leigh, in the mouth of the Thames, and later from Harwich for trawling for shrimps. The origin of the bawley is uncertain, but its development is probably asociated with the earlier Thames fishing boats known as peter-boats. The early bawleys were clincher-built and contained a wet well for keeping the shrimps alive. The modern type, like the one represented here, were carvel-built with a boiler in which the catch was prepared for market.
